Farm Wortt nil Crops. A number of solid farmers living in different directions from the c:ty met in W. E Bard's drug store yesterday and dipcussed the condition of their respective crops. They all decided that the output of winter wheat is fuliy one half greater than last year and is all in, the finest condition, just risht to stand the winter. Frost came a little too late to dry the corn as it should. It is now very heavy and will have to be left standing in the fields longer than it would if it had been nipped by the frost a week or two earlier. The fall has been excellent for farm work and more or less improvement has been made on every farm. Miles of ditches have been put in and fences built so that there will be nothing to delay commencing operations early next spring. There are two forms of chronic rheuma tism; one in which the joints are swollen and red without fever; in the other the joints are stiff and painful. In either form nalvation Oil may .be relied on to effect a cure. It kills pain. 25 cents. Popnlar discrimination in favor of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup has given it a larger sale than any other remedy of its class. Price 25 cents. A Dlrorce Wanted. Mrs. Dottie Hull, by her attorney G W. Barnett, filed a petition ia the office of the circuit clerk yesterday asking for a divorce from her husband James L. Hull. If the half of her statements be true Hull de serves to be horse-whipped out of town. Mrs. Hull, alleges that she was married to the defendant on the 25th of August 1880 and that shortly after their marriage he began to treat her ill, and to abuse her children by a former marriage so that they were driven from home. He kicked and beat her so that she still bears the scars. She alleges that one bitter cold day she for humanity's sake permitted two travelers to stop at their house a few moments to warm by the fire, they conducted themselves properly and departed after they had be come warm. The defendant, her husband hearing of this act Hew into a great rage in the presence of their children, and said that if she ever did such a thing again he he would blow her hrainp out. The chil dren began to cry whereupon he told them not to cry as he would take them into an other room, but would kill their mother. Of her indignities aad abuse were heaped upon her until life became intolerable, and on the 25th of last August, the ninth anni versary of their wedding, she left him and has since refused to live with him. She al leges that they have three children by their marriage, and that she has ample means to take care of them, and there fore desires the court to award them to her custody. N. B. Our store will be open till 8 o'clock every night after this date, "rain or shine." ' TEUSTEE'S SALE. Whereas B. W. Vedder and wife, H. A.

Dear Sister For some days I have tried to acknowledge the receipt of $20 from kind sisters and friends of Sedalia, never before have I experienced such true friendship as from the ladies of the B. of L. E., especially in the last three weeks. My husband was taken sick with mala ria from the dampness of thecell where he has to sleep, and no one can imagine my feelings when I discoyered him sick in the prison hospital, and the same time was in formed ny the attendant that they did not expect him to live the day before. I was not even notified of his sickness. Hoping that some day W6 may meet, I will close, thanking you a thousand times for your generosity. I remain Sincerely joure. Mrs. J. A. Beauerisen.

HeFinds a "Saint" and Proceeds to Give Him Away A Clin- I -mvtr (n 11.-, ntln The Prowler in his rounds last week happened upon a man who labors un der a singular hallucination. He thinks he is one of the best men in Sedalia, if not the best man. The Prowler uses the word "thinks" ad visedly, since it is apparent to almost anybody who will talk to the man in question that he really thinks he is a good man. His face glows and his eyes sparkle as he recounts his virtu ous deeds and yet a short time go, rumor speaks the truth, t::i3 same man put a poor widow out of a house which he own3 for the simple reason that her rent was due and she was not ready with the money. In vain she pleaded that illness had prevented her from earning at her trade, dressmaking, the usual amount of money. His heart was as tough as a boarding house chicken, and, with her two little chil dren, she had to go. On another occa sion this man refused to pay a poor lame darkey for sawing his wood be cause the darkey had sawed by the wrong measurement, and there are other instances on record of his un- adulterated and unmixed mean ness. The Prowler would not tell on him, however, were it not that by his clever self righteousness he has led others to be lieve in and exalt him much more than he really deserves. Here i3 somethiug which the Prowler clipped from the Boston Herald and although he is now and always expects to be a bachelor he has heart enough in him for "our girls" to advise them to carefully and prayerfully read the clipping: "We can conceive or no worse fate for a pure girl than this -to marry while in a dream; to exaggerate "a man's good qualities until nothing else is visible: to minimize bi3 vices until they disappear; to have a brief Honeymoon ot measureless bliss; then to see the man as he is and as others have always seen him coarse, com mon, vulgar, vicous and even cruel; to learn to loathe him because he is a brute; to loathe herself because she was such a fool a3 to throw her life away; to curse her parents because tney did not take ner oy force and t irow her into a celL a dungeon. aiv p ace of confinement, until she came to ner senses; to be beaten, neglected, unprovided for, sneered at by the man whom she once thought a god well, to endure such a fate as that is so awful that even htrtnan sympathy avails nothing to assuage the sorrow." The Prowler knows of a little woman in Sedalia who is on the eve of getting into trouble. She is mar ried to a good man and is herself a good woman, although a little giddy and foolish. She has not had a wide experience in the world and she is pi;one to believe all that is told her, no matter who her informant may be. The trouble she i3 nearing lies in this fact. A young man who ought to be engaged in better busine33, is endeav oring to gain her confidence for a base and outrageous purpose and on more than one occasion he has whis pered sweet, but also venomous, noth ings into her ear without so much as a rebuke. To an outsider the woman is like the dove slowly being fascinat ed by a serpent and when she reads this she should believe that the Prowler means it for her good when he tells her that the serpent figura tively is a serpent in reality, and she should flee from such an influence with all the haste possible. No mat ter what the young scoundrel may assert, the Prowler solemnly assures the little woman that he is a liar and a scoundrel of the deepest dye. There is said to be a certain hotel in this city which is fast gaining a reputation abroad as a place where the female employes are suorjorted hv certain men, with the knowledge of the proprietors and where the tips thus earned are in a measure shared by them. It i3 whispered among- the m o reputable girls of this city, too, that tney are "on ' to the little game of the "certain men" and a club will be formed for the purpose of boycotting not only the hotel by reccommending all their male friends from other cities to stop elsewhere, but also for the purpose of boycotting the cer tain men referred to. The Prowler advises the girls to go slow in this matter, however they may mase a ser ious mistake. The Prowler supposes that as a benefactor to his sex he ought to warn certain of them that they mahe great fools of themselves when tney trust their reputations in the hands of negro servant girls and others in the same position. jNot one of these creatures care how soon they are known as a "favorite3 and having nothing to lose themselves they give the whole story away despite of oaths and promises. The Prowler know of a case in this city where a young man who moves in good society wa3 refused admittance to a residence where he had been a fre quent caller, because the "colored lady" who was holding his reputation by a thread, "told on him." The gentleman (?) in question did not know why the doors referred to were closed on mm, bat after reading this he will be wiser. CHAS. E.

Young men who come to this city, if for only a brief stay, find their chief difficulty lies in the fact that they have no concrenial rjlar.fi in which to spend their evenings and hente they drift into questionable places, it pleasant and refined phees were open to them, the Prowler firm ly believes that the majority of young men, who come here as strangers, would prefer t spend their evenings there rather than elsewhere.
